“First time here and we were so impressed! Thank you for a very special evening. We thought the tasting menu was beautifully presented, tasted amazing and the portions were generous for a tasting menu (sometimes small portions leave us feeling unsatisfied with tasting menus but this wasn’t the case at The Artichoke!) We can’t wait to come back. ”
